Masking Technique For A Bold Graphic Design

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

Hey! Look at me making cards for no reason!  It's so hard, in the summer, for me to want to sit inside and make anything unless I have a deadline.  It's not that I don't love it.  I just love the warmth and sunshine more, especially now that I live in the Northeastern US and most of the year is chilly or cold! {I grew up in Florida}

Today my card is just as sunshiny as the weather!  I used WP9 lemons from Summer Citrus to create an all over pattern.  Then I cut several masks using the lemon die from the coordinating die set.  I think I cut about 5 masks.  That way I could mask off several lemons at a time, stamp the black image and then reposition the masks in another area.  I think this gives such a cool, graphic look! 
I don't mind that there is a gap between the lemon image and the black image.  I think it adds to the 'the look'.   That black image is a stamp from the Altenew set called Simple Flowers.  After all of my stamping and masking, I cut the panel using the WP9 4 Bar Stitched Rectangle Die.

 My sentiment is a mixture of heat embossed and die cut from the WP9 Hand Lettered Hello set and coordinating die.  I used a banner from PTI called the Double Ended Banner Die.  That banner helps hide adhesive that you might otherwise see through the vellum.
The vellum overlay and black panel were both die cut with the largest of the Stitched Rectangle Die set from Simon Says Stamp.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
